Blonde Turkey(or Chicken) Chili

Another one of our winter time favorites. This can be done quickly on the stove top or put everything in the slow cooker and let it sit all day. YUM!!

1 TB olive oil
1 medium onion , chopped
2 cloves garlic , minced
2 cups diced cooked turkey or chicken
4 cups chicken stock
3 cans Great Northern Beans or White Beans, drain/rinse 2 cans and leave one UNDRAINED**
1 sm can diced green chilies
1.5 cups frozen corn
1-2 TB cumin(to your taste preference)
1 tsp garlic powder
1 TB dried oregano
1 TB dried parsley
1/4-1/2 tsp red pepper flakes
--in my opinion ,added salt is not really necessary because of the undrained can of beans , they are usually pretty heavy on the salt, but you can add more if you like
**1 lbs great northern beans can be subbed, soaked , rinsed and may want to add a little salt and 1/2 cup water to the recipe to compensate for the missing bean liquid, but not 100% necessary

In a large pot heat oil over medium heat. Add onions and garlic and sautee until tender.
Add in remaining ingredients and simmer for 30 minutes.

Alternately you can put all the ingredients in a slow cooker and let it simmer all day..

Topping suggestions: Sour Cream, Green Onions, Monterrey Jack Cheese, Jalapeños or Jalapeño Death Sauce (I chose sour cream and death sauce!)
